for a vote. i just pray that boehner puts it up for a vote. >> my god, imagine if he doesn't, how insensitive to the needs, the crying needs of the innocence of slaughter. >> jennifer: this is your state. i know you feel it deeply. the president said he might use executive orders if congress fails to act. there are some who say in congress in legislative bodies that that is just circumventing congress. there are people who have talked about impeaching the president if he goes around congress. i'm assuming you're okay if the president goes around an obstructionist group. >> i think the following. we can accomplish some things by executive order and there will be some of the items that needing to through a legislative process. my hope is that people who are speaking out now, even before the recommendations are laid out there, we'll take a step back and look at what is in the best interest of american families and america's children. that's what needs to be the guiding principle here as to how we get it done. >> jennifer: you're also debate debating another sandy issue which is hurri

constituency. it really may prove to be bigger. and we've seen that boehner will bow to pressure and we saw what the fiscal cliff vote, he let something come to the floor. you know, i don't want to say that it's impossible at this point. it is a very, very steep uphill climb. i don't want to say it is impossible. even if it does lose, you're absolutely right that it's better to have fought the good fight, a. and b, it shows them for what they are and paints them as so much more marginal in the eyes of so many more americans. >> jennifer: i do think people will empower rational gun owners of which the vast majority are and those -- you know, reasonable republicans of which maybe not all in congress but the vast majority are. you mention this issue about john boehner having brought up two bills so far this month. the fiscal cliff and the sandy relief bill without a majority of his majority behind it. if he brought up a vote on this issue, would his speakership be at risk? >> yes. it probably would be. and then, of course, there is a debt ceiling vote. now you hear a lot of republicans

john boehner for pete's sake. >> right. and it is heard breaking and our leaders are human beings, and i think it's awesome that we recognize them as human beings, and it's those human reactions that make me feel good about the fact that the decisions they make will be guided by both the brain, and the heart, the right way to do it. >> jennifer: yeah, you are exactly right about that. you put it so well. >> i think for her -- i think -- >> jennifer: go ahead. >> i was just going to say -- i -- i don't think anybody thinks hillary clinton is weak. so i think when you have a human moment like that it doesn't take away from her standing in our world at all. >> jennifer: i agree. the other person who is sort of a heart-centered person in the administration is joe biden. >> yeah. >> jennifer: and they are both -- joe and hilary very close and of course potentially competitors in a 2016 run. do you think that would actually happen? would one of them step back for the other? because they are very dear friends? >> here is the one thing i can tell you about both of them that i believe. if

pipeline. john boehner had this to say about it. he said nebraska's approval of the new keystone xl pipeline route means there is no bureaucratic excuse, hurdle or catch president obama can use to delay this project any further. he and he alone stands in the way of tens of thousands of new jobs and energy security. i mean, that's putting it right on the president. >> here is the reality about the keystone pipeline that comes from canada to the united states to deliver oil. that oil is going to somewhere no matter what. this is becoming an ideological touchstone in washington but it doesn't mean a whole lot. that oil will find its way to china, the united states, to europe, wherever it's needed whether the pipeline comes to the united states or it goes across canada and off the coast of vancouver british columbia. this dc fight has very little meaning in the larger picture. >> michael: but those dc fights change the way we talk about it. >> they do. >> michael: it will be the centerpiece for however long for a moment or months of conversation. >> that benefits the status quo. it bene
